We enjoyed two great half day private tours with Zoltan. I loved his saying if there is an open door we go in and see what there is to discover. This is a kind of tour that you can not get with a large group. And that is exactly what we did. Of course we saw the keys sites and... More

5 years ago My Husband and I went on a tour with Zoltan and loved every minute of our adventure! Just recently I took my mom and sister on a trip to Budapest. I have Hungarian roots and my mom has never been to the place that her mother and family was from. I knew I had to get Zoltan... More

Take the Rockhopper's Jewish Budapest tour! We were lucky to have Zoltan Nagy as our guide. Personable, entertaining and committed, Zoltan was very enlightening about the subject matter and his country. He provided great insights that we certainly would have missed on our own. Highly recommended!

One day tour was organised at end of a River Cruise on the Danube. Zoltan did not disappoint! He is truly knowledgeable and informative. As he stated at the start of our day, we would not be having the sugar coated candy tour of Budapest! If you want the standard tourist guide, Zoltan is not your man. If you want... More

Kalliope guided us through the Budapest highlights and at the same time we got her personal perspective on both the sights and Hungarian history and politics. She took the time to answer all our many questions! I appreciated that she gave us her first hand account of life during Communism and post-communism, which made the tour so much more interesting...

She was amazing! She is truly knowledgeable, knew her history and anecdotes. She is a lovely person and picked us up at the hotel. We walked with her and she had the codes to enter certain private buildings so we could see part of the ghetto. She even showed us the only remaining wall of the ghetto, which would have... More

We had an interesting and informative half day tour covering most of the must - see sites plus some other sites of interest- it was very much worth it and gave me a really... More

We had an incredible experience with our guide for two days, Zolton. He is a very interesting person, very intelligent with a rye sense of humor. He shared his knowledge of history and politics as we walked around the streets, alleys, and ruined bars of Budapest. Our experiences visiting the old communist statues was unforgettable. There wasn't a question he... More

A really great tour - very varied and nicely tailored to our interests. Zoltan was extremely knowledgeable and was able to show us things that we would never have seen on our own (without straying from the main sights). We particularly appreciated the tour of the Jewish Quarter and learning about the rivalry between Reform and Orthodox Jews. We also... More

It was a very relaxed tour. If you want something casual, with some information but not an overload of information and history, then this is the tour for you. He definitely knew his city and the streets very well. Good experience overall.
